Ahmedabad, Oct 17 Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) today passed a resolution to boycott Chinese products to protest China's "anti-India" policies.
The executive committee of GCCI today unanimously passed the resolution to boycott Chinese products, GCCI senior vice president Shailesh Patwari said.
The industry body called for a boycott of Chinese products saying that China continues to support Pakistan against India's interest, whether it is using veto to stall India's bid for a UN ban terrorist Masood Azhar or becoming a member of NSG.
"China has been acting against India's interests by constructing a dam on Brahmaputra river and repeatedly trying to cross the border," it said.
With this decision, the industry will boycott all kind of Chinese products, including ceramic products, tiles, clothes, chemical and pharmaceutical products, electronic items, mobile phones, lighting products, crackers, etc.
Meanwhile a 21-km human chain was today formed in the city of Indore in Madhya Pradesh to appeal to people to boycott Chinese products.
"China earns money by selling its products in India and extends financial aid to Pakistan. Pakistan uses the money for anti-India activities," said Mukesh Modi, convener of Hindu Utsav Samiti which had organised the event.
The human chain, which stretched from Palsikar chowk to Bombay Hospital, was formed to appeal the people not to buy the products made in China and to protest China's "proxy-war" against India, he said. Over 30,000 people held hands to form the chain, he said.
